As per the last Post, the Living Desert State Park was created in 1992; the Campground has been a 21st century addition and caters for up to 15 caravan/motorhome sites and a small tent area; there are two “bathrooms” with toilet and shower and wheelchair capable; drinking water for filling tanks is also provided and a BBQ/Shelter at each camping area. Above the camp are seats placed to allow visitors to view Sunrise or Sunset which was not spectacular during our 3 days stay with no clouds to enhance the sky we settled for the sunset from our window .
Close by the Campground (but driving access only) is the Sculpture Trail at the top of an adjacent hill:
“On April 1, 1993, artists from around the world began work on 12 sandstone sculptures in the middle of the desert outside Broken Hill. Giant sandstone blocks weighing more than 50 tonnes had been shipped in from the Wilcannia region for the sculpture symposium, organised by artist Lawrence Beck.
Six weeks later, the artists unveiled their creations, and today, this is one of the most photographed sites in the Australian outback.”
